Stony Point Penguin Boardwalk is now open!

Stony Point Penguin Boardwalk is now open!

Stony Point Penguin Colony boardwalk in Betty’s Bay has re-opened today (15 March 2024), following the completion of repairs.

The Stony Point Nature Reserve is home to a unique colony of African Penguins and provides an opportunity to see these (now endangered birds), up close via the boardwalk through the colony. It allows the public to observe the penguins go about their daily activities in their natural habitat, without disturbing them.

The colony lies on the site of the old Waaygat Whaling Station, which was used to harvest and process whale meat in the early to mid-1900s. Remnants of the machinery and infrastructure for this long-defunct industry can still be found at the site.

Also present in the colony are three species of cormorant; the Crowned cormorant, Cape cormorant and Bank cormorant, all of which breed on the outer rocks.

The reserve is run and managed by Cape Nature. Entrance to the Stony Point area is R30 per adult and R20 per child over the age of 3 years, payable at the gate and they are open from 08:00 – 16:30.
